The food was great, the atmosphere was phenomenal. The only downside is the sleazy two-dollar upcharge when you order a whiskey "neat." In the future, I'll just order it on the rocks and take out the ice myself.

The food is so good! At first we were in a hurry so we were a little stressed about how busy it was but wanted to try to stick it out anyways because we heard it was amazing! We ordered the Brussel sprouts as an appetizer. My best friend got the chicken sandwich with cranberry mayo
and I got harvest bowl! Everything was full of flavor and we were able to go the healthier route and get our chicken grilled and we enjoyed every bit of our lunch! On top of that we were in and out in less than 30 minutes! Successful lunch for sure!

Waiter was great, food delicious! I’ve been to one in Chattanooga and the one in Knoxville. Super tasty, all my favorites! Fried okra, fried green tomatoes and the warm pimiento cheese dip with chips phenomenal!

Tupelo Honey always delivers on good food. Seems like every time we go, the table is not ready on time for our reservation. We had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated (we’ve had to wait longer). Our server on this most recent visit was great and our food came very quickly.

I went with a coworker for dinner after the UT/MSU football game, so I expected a busy restaurant with slower-than-normal service. I was very pleasantly surprised to have phenomenal service to go with the really delicious food. I can't remember our servers name; but, she was FANTASTIC! She kept checking us through out the experience; but, didn't go over-board. We enjoyed the look of the venue and really enjoyed the fried okra as our appetizer! I would easily recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quaint, warm, fun venue with good food and fantastic staff. I don't get to Knoxville that often; but, when I do come back, I will definitely look into making my reservations at Tupelo Honey again!

Busy Friday night, but they were able to accommodate us a little earlier than our reservation in the bar seating. Great service, food is always good, all in all a great place on Market Square.

Tupelo Honey in Knoxville is everything we had hoped it would be. The food is wonderful, the desserts delectable, the staff is awesome (Thanks Pat), and the location is outstanding! We've been to Tupelo Honey in Asheville and when we saw that Knoxville had one, our decision of where to eat was determined. It is located on Market Street in a very quaint, cool park-like area. Highly recommend Tupelo Honey!!!

Best value for your money in market square, the BOGO free drinks are awesome. I can’t believe they do that 6 days a week. Not just for happy hour. The food was franchise food, what can I say, it all comes off the back of the same truck people.

Tupelo Honey is a must stop whenever I am visiting my grandmother in Knoxville. The menu and execution of all items on it are incredibly thoughtful, even my husband, who is a chef in NYC said, “you can tell there is love in this food.” I find the menu to be well-balanced and the food well-seasoned, comforting and light, and nothing short of extraordinary. This is enough to keep us coming back regardless of service and ambience but I’ll be darned if they aren’t at the top of their game here too. Our server this visit was Christy and she was kind and quick and seemed to know what we needed before asking. We even dragged my 91 year old grandmother down from Powell to enjoy the experience. We always get the sweet potato pancakes, fried green tomatoes on goat cheese grits and absolutely the potato cracklins. Very well done Chef and Tupelo Honey. Keep up the outstanding work!

We had a great time hanging out on the patio. There was a steel drum/saw playing duo on the sidewalk keeping us entertained.
The food was interesting take on southern food and delicious! We are sorry we were too full for desert!

Service was great. Food was terrible. Ribs were so tough you had to saw them with a knife to get them off of the bone and the chicken was dry. Mgmt adjusted check, but with so many good options in Knoxville, it was a waste—only in town two nights.

Food was average. Not worth the price we paid. Cute little place with friendly wait staff. We were seated between the kitchen and the rest of the dining, a busy throughway. Had a better meal on Gay street the following night.

Second time there and really not impressed...both times food came out warm, not hot. Also, not as full of flavor as we had hoped. Overall, is average and overrated.

Sat outside on a busy college game day and farmers market but great service by Denzel, and good recommendations on the dishes we chose! Great drinks too. All were pleased and they were able to accommodate 7 for us when we had reserved for party of 6.
